LJWorld.com weblogs Craft Shows In Kansas

More of a question then a blog.

Just wondering the best way to go about finding local crafts shows in Kansas. I went on google and while some of the links were useful, for the most part they were outdated and lacked information. Is there a specific website, email address, or link where I can get a list of upcoming craft shows? I'm looking for smaller town craft shows like Eudora, Leavenworth, McLouth, Oskaloosa, Wellsville, etc. Any ideas I'd greatly appreciate them!! Thanks so much!

It may take a little digging, but if you go to www.krpa.org (Kansas Recreation & Parks Assoc), find "Directory Services" in the left sidebar, then you can then click on individual parks & rec departments and check their calendars and announcements. Lots of city or community festivals and events are run by P&R departments.

I agree with your statement about how some of the websites that would seem a logical place to look are way out of date. Likewise, even some individual cities' parks & rec websites are not updated as often as they should be, but others have got this year's festivals & celebrations listed already. Check them again in a month or so and more sites should have their 2009 events listed..

Good luck. If you find some events that look like mad fun, let us know, okay?

ha ha ha.ha. Ask Karen. She probably knows (well everything). I think she used to go years ago. (How can she and I be so old? Just yesterday our kids were having little kid birthday parties, and we were young hot mommies!) http://www.pendletons.com/

Deja - If you know anyone who is "crafty" they probably know best when these events occur. Try Maple Leaf Festival, Art in the Park, Lecompton Territorial Days, McClouth Threshing Bee, Try contacting any of the small town city offices, they are usually very helpful with these inquiries. And good luck!
